After completing my first half marathon yesterday in London, I had three things on my mind – sleep, food, and a large glass of wine (after rehydrating of course).
Having raided my local Co-op for cheese and crackers to munch on, I picked up a bottle of Baron de Ley Rioja Rosado – bright pink with notes of strawberry and red cherry, this juicy wine, reasonably priced at £6.99, was just the ticket.
Baron de Ley is a very good Rioja producer – guaranteed to satisfy after a long day, and it is one of many gems on the wine shelf in the Co-op. You can often pick up a bottle of Torres Viña Sol on offer for less than £5, and I’ve spotted a couple of great German wines in there too such as Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett. It is well worth having a browse down their wine aisle and you can even learn a thing or two about wine on their website!
